Why She Chose Santa Clara

"I chose Santa Clara because when I walked onto campus I felt like it was a place I belonged.  I love all the people I've met and I love the campus! I also love the area Santa Clara is in, being so close to San Francisco, but not right in the city.  I can't wait to start!"
